Diversity stories for kids: our planet

Stories and News No. 833

A new planet was discovered on the end of the solar system...

Once upon a time there was her.
Or he.
Call them, too.
Call them what you like, so this is granted and, rarely, actually blamed. Because it happens again, again, and again.
Call us, this time.
With the eyes that look farther, necessarily.
Think about it, really. Who could look at the very antipodes of today better than those who bet on that mirage their present time, their souls and the last wishes?

The main pages of the authoritarian saying will no longer be called into question, from now on. Because you will play and sing in full autonomy. The notes of the official melody will get in the ears without the slightest friction.
The way will be smooth and you will no longer need to hide the dirt under the carpet.
Because we, the dirt, we will be long gone.
Simple, I would say right.
We, him, her, and them who, inevitably, have got the only eyes able to reach the outer limits of the sky, we can exclaim without any fear of contradiction.
